It has been an odd week this week. Public holidays and migraines, web design and artwork, red and indigo. Most of the weekend was spent juggling between a website deadline and making time for the kids who have been on school holidays, home with Daddy. Mummy has been at work a lot lately so I’m […]
Tired tonight so all you get is a doodle 😀
Zentangle is a tradename for meditative doodling. Grab a piece of paper, a pen and just draw. It has become a well defined artform with accredited Zentangle teachers, books, websites and groups of people focussed on this fun and relaxing art.
What do you see?
I had a good time playing around in my journal and talking art today. Of course, instead of tackling my planned blog topic for today which had been ‘sgraffito’, I contented myself with playing with yesterday’s embossing and stencilling experiments and arranging them in my journal.
I saw the word ’emboss’ and thought, hey, I bought some embossing tools awhile back. I think I’ll have a play.
It looks better in real life, trust me. My scanner has issues with red, as does my camera and printer. It must be the awkward end of the spectrum. in any case,I have red and yellow gel pen squiggles all over this and it has developed into a rather interesting background. I call it a work in progress because I think it needs a focus, something I have yet to work out what.
I’ve been fascinated by this background from my acrylic experiments last week. it has been yelling at me to create something from it. But I don’t know what. So last night I printed off a couple of copies of the square, and since they are reproduceable copies, I felt free to make as many mistakes as I had to. That is always very freeing. I still didn’t know what to make of it, so I just put my gel pen to the paper and drew. I don’t know what I’ve come up with, but I like it.
I’ve only got dud sketches for this week’s Sunday Sketches. Last week was a funk week so very little was done. First up we have an attempt to answer last week’s Illustration Friday prompt of ‘deja-vu’. I had a concept, but my brain wouldn’t supply me with an image to fully communicate what I was […]
This is the grand total of the art I did this week. Spikkles, gel pen on black paper, approx. 70 x 70 mm. Basically I bought some more gel pens and wanted to play with them. Wonky is the word. Nutty(I think I need some more Art Every Day Month :D)
